    Asa Martin (update transferring)

    I am completely aware of what happened. And figured you would respond since you are one of the ones that has all knowledge concerning what goes on at AU. By the fact that he played in 5 games instead of 4 games means he played more; so he got more playing time. Do you really think he was staying if he was redshirted? I don't, he was not satisfied with his playing time and the talent that was in front of him. By not redshirting him, he can now transfer without losing any more eligibility. He will sit out a year as a redshirt. He will still have 3 years remaining after he transfers. Guess what, that is the exact amount of time he would have left he had stayed. He hasn't lost anything except the opportunity to play college football for five years. If he was here for 5 years do you really think he would have been a contributor in year 5?

    First time I think I have seen a player upset because he got more playing time. Redshirts do not mean much of anything now days. Any players worth much is only at a school 3 years anyway. I believe he was transferring no matter what, especially if he has received less playing time and redshirted. We have done him a favor by not burning his redshirt. He can now transfer and sit out without losing a year of eligibility.
  3. No doubt. I thought Miller had a really nice 2nd half of the season.

    Right. Media ask you a question and you do not answer it one way or another and media goes crazy giving your competitors additional weeks to negative recruit against you. You know that right? If the AD or administration does anything other than support the coach until the moment a decision has been reached, the program is being harmed more than it has to. As a side note this board is turning into a few smart asses that think that they know everything when in reality they know very little. Resulting in posters that actually do bring something to the table, posting less and less.

    When you are asked the question and recruiting is in full swing, what are you going to say?

    Iron Bowl-what's your best memory?

    I think it was actually 69

    RB Dominos

    Probably because he weight 185 lbs or so.. It is becoming more and more evident that this league requires about 210+ at the running back position.
  8. Well while the O line play has been subpar all year, I think you can trace it back to the center position. While the other positions have had issues with consistency, the center position whoever has played it, gets mauled nearly all the time. I am of the opinion that if we had better center production that the O line production would have been better this year. Not great by any means, but I think that is the one position that we can point to and say it has been the weakest of the weak links in the O line.

    A Little Buyout Backlash

    No offense, you are going to have to give a link or something on Faye Dunaway at Auburn. I have never heard that.

    Kirby is trying to make the playoffs. Score if you can.

    Big Plays Given Up By Our Defense

    A lot on this board has given the D a pass for some of their performance this year but the fact is they have been underwhelming to say the least: in everyone of our losses they were major contributors. Just needed one stop in the LSU game and we win. While our O was awful against MSU, they gashed us at what was supposed to be our strength, D line . We made Tenn QB look like an AA on third downs and then again last night big play after big play. The losing has been a team effort this year and no coach gets a pass on it.

    Broken record of Mazahn hits

    Going to disagree. The way the SEC divvies out money from the TV revenue gives almost all teams equal shares. There is an advantage going to better bowl games. Some bowl revenue goes to the SEC pot and some goes to the school. The better the bowl the better the revenue. We are going to crappy bowls mostly. How do you think Under Armours next contract will look based on what the exposure they get from AU; 11am kickoff, low ratings, etc. FNs not buying their AU gear. Yes fundraising and donations are important. If donations get held backed or not pledged or season tickets drop off, the revenue stream will easily be more than Gus’s annual buyout. There is also a negative economic impact to the local community with fewer people coming to AU each week. As I said in another thread, this is really not Green’s decision. If the board moves on this he will just deliver the news.

    Georgia Game Report Card

    The main part will be money. If money starts being withheld the impact can be staggering. Hold back on future donations and previously pledged donations, reduced season ticket sales (license fee per seat), local economic impact to Auburn community due to fewer people attending next week and continued crappy bowl revenue to name a few. Impact can be in the millions yearly; much more than Malzahns buyout. Also Greene really doesn’t have a say. If the board pushes this it could happen.

    I don't see what the big deal is. If he turns out to be a real stud then he is only probably here 3 years or 4 at the most, so we haven't lost anything. If he does not turn out to be that good then he will get buried on the depth chart as the years go by.

    Correct. The fact is AC is missing the kicks. Not the coach. He received a scholarship because ha has a big leg and is supposed to be a scoring weapon from 50+. These long kicks are not supposed to be something beyond his capabilities.
